From the point of view of the head of the think tank Institute for the Study of War, General Jack Keane, the countries of the West are de facto “helping” Moscow move forward. According to him, the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) need more weapons to deter the advance of Russian troops.
“The advantage of the Russians is in the number of weapons they have. Ukrainians have enough skills, will and people, but they lack weapons,” Keane shared his point of view, pointing out that Western equipment and ammunition simply do not reach Ukraine on time.
The TV channel reminds that US President Joe Biden recently approved a $1.2 billion military aid package for Ukraine. Since the politician took office, Washington has allocated about $6.3 billion to Kyiv, while $5.6 billion was provided after the start of Russia's special military operation in Ukraine.
The Russian Federation launched a special military operation in Ukraine on 24 February. Russian President Vladimir Putin called its goal the demilitarization and denazification of the republic, as well as the protection of the people of Donbass. For this, according to the Russian leader, it is planned to bring to justice all war criminals responsible for “bloody crimes against civilians” in the region. According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the Russian army strikes only at the military infrastructure and units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU).
